to be running back and forth to places. president bill clinton will be on the show later this morning. and we have a lot to talk about this morning. >> we do. you go first. >> we saw "waiting for superman" yesterday. actually the story dovetails nicely with the newark story today that's in the news. but wow. you walk out of it feeling really twisted up and angry. >> willie, we were all there, and i knew how it was going to end. people were telling me about the lottery for these poor kids trying to get into good schools and the parents, and even knowing how it was going to end just everybody broke down crying at the end. you just sat there knowing you were watching a personal tragedy unfold. >> in your own country, in our world. >> thinking about that all night after we saw it. the metaphor of the lottery balls, the fact that a child's education rests on a ball being plucked out of a bin is so outrageous, you have to see this movie. >> i work very hard, as you know. >> you do. >> because i'm naturally sort of an energetic guy. i stay calm. i learned that you try not to cast moral aspersions in
. bush and bill clinton, two -- and you go into great detail in the book -- two very different personalities. very different perspectives in terms of governing. >> yeah, i try to in my observations about president clinton and president bush. obviously i worked with them closely. they both became close personal friends. no great insight they are completely different people. but they've still got that -- you see why they won an election and why they won two terms. and they have a -- i saw both close up. bill clinton particularly over kosovo which was a really difficult decision he had to take. and of course with president bush after september 11th. the one thing that comes out to me about american presidents, and i would say the same about president obama is that there is this sense that you have, and i know this sounds odd, you would say surely yes of course politicians should be like that. i think all of them had that any the final analysis they would put the country first. you may say, of course that's what they are elected to do. when you have met many world leaders that's no
a big special interest, corporate interest they never liked. >> let me bring bill clinton into this conversation. and john avalon, i'll give you a chance. this is what former president clinton had to say about the tea party today. listen to this. >> in their purist form, the tea partiers are saying, i've been let down by big business and big government. the funders of the tea party movement, tend to be pretty far right extremists who want -- their goal is to destroy the power of government to mediate the power of corporations. >> so, john, avalon, again, he said to take down the power of government and essentially increase the power, his point, of corporations. does he have a point? >> i agree with him on the first point. it's about anger in government and big business. bill clinton is one of the smartest strategists out there, especially on the democratic side. these groups that are funding the tea party movement, it's important to appreciate that they pump up the tea party movement. if the tea party movement wasn't a genuine uprising, these folks' money wouldn't make any

: on the politics end. bill clinton promised democrats if they only voted for this bill it would become popular before the election. is he going have to offer a lot of the people jobs at his foundation? >> bill clinton led them down the garden path as did barack obama. this was perhaps the greatest political miscalculation in the last 50 years, this thing is not selling and, yeah, he is going to have to offer them jobs. >> the line is going to be long. when we come back, the latest salvos in the battle over school reforms, the movement, get the boost as al gore's movie director sets his sights on the teachers union, but they have the school chief michelle reed in their sights. will she hold on to her job? . look at all this stuff foffee. oh there's tons. french presses, expresso tampers, filters. it can get really complicated. not nearly as complicated as shipping it, tho. i mean shipping is a hassle. not with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. if it fits it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. th is easy. best news i've hed all day! i'm soooo amped! i mean not
